Onion Mozzarella Tartlets

These Tartlets are one of my favourite, quick and easy. Cheese, Caramalised onions and peppers on soft ,warm and flaky puff pasty gives a wonderful taste. Can be taken as a starter or as a snack. I simply hope you enjoy it as much as i did..

You'll need..


250 gm Puff pastry sheets
2 Red Onions
1 Red Capsicum
8 Cherry tomatoes, halved
100 gms Mozzarella Cheese
1 tsp Dried Thyme leaves
A tsp of Olive oil
Salt to taste

Here you go..

First preheat the oven to 200 deg C.

Take out the puff pastry sheets from the freezer and let it sit for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut the onions and peppers lengthwise. Take oil in a pan and fry the onions and peppers with salt to taste on a medium heat till they turn soft. Remove and keep aside.

Now cut the puff pasty sheets into 7 - 8 cm long squares. Cut down the edges of the puff pasty sheets, about 1/2 a centimeter on all the sides. Apply some water on the borders of the sheets and place the long sut pieces on the borders.

Place an aluminium foil (cut into square) in the center of the squares and bake for 10 minutes.

Now remove the foil and bake again. Dough might stick to the foil while taking it out but do not worry. take it out carefully and bake for another 5 minutes.

Now place the onion and pepper stuffing in the center of the puff pasty. Slightly push the stuffing inside. Place the cherry tomatoes and top up with the mozzarella cheese and thyme leaves.

Now bake again for 15 minutes or till the crust turns golden brown.
